Pours a hazy dark pink, verging on ruby red with a foamy white head. Loads of bubbles streaming up the side of the glass. The aroma has plenty of floral notes, sour cherries, red grapefruit, and a light Brett funkiness. The taste is nice and subtle. Itís sour, slightly bitter with a floral and citric backbone. Medium bodied and dry. A delicious, very easy to drink sour ale.

Pours a wonderful red color. Aroma is floral, tart, sour cherries, cranberry. Flavor has a floral note, some good berries and is nice and tart. Juicy and invites you to keep sipping. Really good. Thanks to boamr for the share!

Bottle @ Gingerman with streets and James. Ruby red pour, nose of airy, fleeting red fruit. Palate is very subtle red fruit like strawberry and cherry. Tart yet not sour and not as robust or packed full of fruit as I was hoping. But that kept me sipping. James said it was much better on tap but heís a stupid butt.

Pours bright red with no head. Aroma of funk, vinegar, cherries and flowers. Taste follows very subtle, the sour is there but not over the top. Very nice sour ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big thanks to Huhzubendah for sharing this one. Served in a Captain Lawrence cervoise. Pours a nice, bright pink color with a tall light pink head. Good retention and lacing. Wow, itís an elderflower beer that tastes good. More else and hibiscus. Very well done. Subtle and nuanced, but still pungent. Fairly tart.

JAXSON (528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours a bright pink salmon with a large creamy head. Nose is American wine barrel, tight brett, pretty bright, then a bouquet of herbal flowers. On first whiff it reminded me of Mamouche in a way which has elderflowers. Pretty dank nose overall. Mouth is pleasantly dry, a kind of very integrated dry white wine barrel with the tight brett. Finish is cracked pepper and fresh field flowers. I actually really like this, itís one of my favorite Captain Lawrence beers from recent memory.

PhillyCraft (3184) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle with some Bros courtesy of Bill. Pours a murky pink with small head, medium light lacing. Aromas are floral all the way: hibiscus, elderberries, rose hips, sour fruit and light oak. So delicate but drinkable at the same time. What an amazing fruit beer, glad I have a few more bottles to try.

Bottle, first shared by Dmac. Pours out a pinkish/red framboise looking beer with a light pink head. Aroma is of mildly tart brett, funk, lots of sweet floral notes, rose water and light mothball; solid carbonation. Taste is of light sourness, mothball, funk, floral roses, light sweetness, a subdued funky, sour tart note resonates and finishes with slight tartness. Iíd like to see what some more time does to it.
